Ahead of the RIZIN bantamweight grand prix, Ian McCall and Manel Kape got into a brief scuffle at the weigh-ins. Kape slapped McCall in the back of the head as they faced the crowed following their staredown. McCall retaliated with a punch to the face, followed by Kape missing his punches. Officials were quick to separate the two.
